Make planning iterative, inclusive and flexible.

Disaster management and infrastructure planning cannot be developed solely at the national level – local stakeholders with knowledge of local context, needs, and constraints, must be an active part of the planning process. Plans should allow for the development of local innovations and solutions. Plans need to remain relevant under a wide range of conditions and contexts. Such flexibility will allow for better use of local resources and capacity, and greatly speed up disaster response.
